Rockies' Kris Bryant: On track for spring training
Rockies GM Bill Schmidt said Thursday the training staff indicated that Bryant (foot) "looks good," and the organization is "optimistic" the slugger will be healthy for the start of spring training, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The 30-year-old signed a seven-year, $182 million deal with the club in March, but his first year in Colorado was a disaster, as plantar fasciitis limited him to only 42 games. Bryant finished with a .306/.376/.475 slash line but had only five home runs in 181 plate appearances. He has a couple more months to get up to full health before the start of spring training in February.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brent Suter: Avoids arbitration with new deal
Suter agreed to terms with Colorado on Friday, signing a one-year, $3 million contract to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Suter played his seventh MLB campaign for the Brewers last season, pitching in 54 games as a reliever and posting a 3.78 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 53:22 K:BB over 66.2 innings. He was claimed off waivers by the Rockies on Friday and quickly agreed to terms with the club for the 2023 campaign. Given Colorado's bullpen woes last year, Suter should begin next season in a high-leverage role, possibly as the primary setup man ahead of closer Daniel Bard.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Re-signs with Rockies
Kinley (elbow) signed a three-year extension including a club option for 2026 with the Rockies on Friday.
Kinley was forced to miss the majority of 2022 after undergoing season-ending surgery on his right elbow in July. Prior to his surgery, he had recorded a 0.75 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 24 innings, putting him on pace for what could've been by far the best season of his career. There's no hard timetable for his return in 2023, but it's likely he will miss at least the first few weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brent Suter: Claimed by Rockies
Suter was claimed off waivers by the Rockies on Friday.
Suter got off to a rough start last season, posting a 4.58 ERA ahead of the All-Star break, but a 2.87 ERA and 1.05 WHIP during the second half of the season showed that the 33-year-old lefty was still a viable option out of the 'pen. He could be an arm that Colorado relies on often in 2023 as the team looks to improve on a 2022 campaign in which they ranked last in bullpen ERA (4.85).... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Reaches deal with Colorado
Lamet signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Rockies on Wednesday.
Lamet was claimed off waivers by the Rockies in August after he was traded to the Brewers and designated for assignment, and he was able to avoid arbitration with his new team. The 30-year-old allowed 13 earned runs over 12.1 innings with San Diego prior to the trade but pitched better for Colorado with a 4.05 ERA across 20 frames.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Nolan Jones: Sent to Colorado
Jones was acquired by the Rockies from the Guardians on Tuesday in exchange for Juan Brito.
Jones made his MLB debut with Cleveland last season and had a .244/.309/.372 slash line with two home runs and 13 RBI in 28 games. The 24-year-old will now join the Rockies and should have a chance to earn a role in the majors next year.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Riley Pint: Joins 40-man roster
Pint was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Tuesday.
Pint, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 draft, stepped away from baseball in 2021 after significant struggles, but he rejoined the Rockies in March of 2022 and had some success as a reliever at Double-A and Triple-A. Now 25 years old, the former starter will focus on honing his command in order to contribute to the big-league bullpen in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brenton Doyle: Protected from Rule 5 draft
Doyle was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Tuesday.
Doyle has impressive raw power and above-average speed, but strikeouts have been a major issue in the upper levels. The 24-year-old outfielder hit .256/.300/.473 with a 31 percent strikeout rate, 26 home runs and 23 steals in 548 plate appearances at Double-A and Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Julio Carreras: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Carreras was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Tuesday.
Carreras, who turns 23 in January, has impressive physical tools on both sides of the ball, but he struggled in a small sample at Double-A last season (80 wRC+, 30.9 percent strikeout rate in 19 games). He hit .289/.352/.473 with 11 home runs and 17 steals in 110 games at High-A.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Blair Calvo: Joins 40-man roster
Calvo was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Tuesday.
Calvo is a 26-year-old relief pitching prospect with no experience above Double-A. He had a 3.09 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 47 strikeouts and zero saves in 35 innings across 29 appearances at Double-A this past season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Warming Bernabel: Joins 40-man roster
Bernabel's contract was selected by Colorado on Tuesday.
The move means Bernabel won't be available for selection in the Rule 5 draft, though he still has some work to do before he pushes for an active roster spot. The 20-year-old has yet to reach the Double-A level, though he did hit .313/.370/.499 with 14 homers and 23 steals in 91 games last season, split between Single-A and High-A.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Re-signs with Colorado
Urena agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Rockies on Friday, which includes a club option for 2024, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The veteran right-hander began 2022 in a relief role for the Brewers but was let go in May and joined the Rockies. He worked as a starter in Colorado and had a 5.14 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 60:38 K:BB across 89.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Wynton Bernard: Loses spot on 40-man roster
Bernard was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Bernard was sent to the minors in late August and will now be cast off the team's 40-man roster. It wouldn't be surprising to see him serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Cast off 40-man roster
Olivarez (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Olivarez sustained a scapula strain in the back of his left shoulder in April and spent the entire 2022 season on the injured list. It's unclear whether he'll be healthy for the start of spring training in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ty Blach: Outrighted to Triple-A
Blach was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Blach spent the final week of the 2022 season with the big-league club, but he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster now that the offseason is underway. It's possible that he serves as a non-roster invitee this spring.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Dylan Spain: Traded to Colorado
Spain was traded from Atlanta to Colorado on Sunday in exchange for Sam Hilliard.
Spain was drafted by Atlanta in the 10th round of the first-year player draft in 2021, and he spent the 2022 campaign at High-A Rome. He made 36 appearances (seven starts) and posted a 5.30 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 56 innings. The right-hander will likely begin the 2023 season at High-A Spokane or Double-A Hartford.... See More ...
